    Another word of caution is if you position them out at the edges of the bucket it doesn't take too much weight on just one side to tip over your tractor. I never bothered to add them but if I did it...

    I've had mine for several years now and there was a few things I needed to finish. First was the pressure bar. It's a powder coated orange color. The part that actually touches the wood had what I...

    I glue both sides as I like to work the PVA into the wood. The exception is if I can move both pieces around some to help spread the glue. If something works why change. I just don't want a glue...

    I would buy a lead paint test kit. Most places wouldn't touch it if there's lead paint on it. Depending on what type of person you are you don't want to breath in any dust when removing it. The...

    It's hard to tell just how steep the land is. You did say there was only one building site without lots of work. To me that's kind of a turn off for most people who might want to put more than one...

    Be careful of the new aftermarket FOBs. They are usually very cheap quality. I had one and within a year one of the switches came off the circuit board. I've had good luck with buying used ones...

    I second this. If a tooth on the hole saw bites in it forces the flute of the pilot bit into the metal in the side of the pilot hole. That'll cause the pilot bit to snap. Switch to a 1/4" rod and...

    If you don't want to deal with customer support can you switch the cables with another axis? If the tripping problem moves then it's most likely either the cable is damaged or the servo is bad.

    I've heard that used car dealers keep the second FOB when they get a car with two. There's companies that sell them used that buy them from the dealers. They may not get much for a used FOB but...

    I have the 600 grit diamond wheel on mine. The only problem is that it would be nice to have the course wheel and extra fine wheels as well. So the problem is the $1000 it would cost. I find the...

    I'm not sure if having a bow in the fence is a problem. Twisted would be though. Glad you got it solved. I think the problem is that demand is so high they just rush them out the door. The metal...

    I'm thinking that the best way to do it is to make a very fine line on the spoil board at the correct angle so I can make the cuts. I'll then glue up the wood in the pattern below. As long as the...

    The only reason for going with a finger joint vs splines was because I've never done finger joints. They seem very simple but until I do it it's still an unknown. I'm thinking that it's one more...

    Unlike steel the pitch doesn't have to be perfect. Some of the inserts did have flat spots on them but not sharp enough IMO to cut threads. I'm just going to get close and use a little epoxy on the...
